The electricity intensive equipment required a different approach to improvement than the less
intensive equipment. By their nature, high intensity equipment tended to be larger, more expensive,
more specialized, and more process critical when compared to the equipment on the lower end of
the spectrum. Therefore, any change to the operation of such equipment required high levels of
confidence that the change would not damage the equipment or disrupt the delivery schedule of the
To alleviate these concerns, each improvement project also utilized the DMAIC approach, where
input from SMEs, measurements, and experiments were analyzed before operational changes were
implemented. These projects are referred to as the Tier Two DMAIC processes from Figure 5-1.
Section 5.1.5 provides two deep dives into two such projects, and Appendix C provides higher level
details from additional DMAIC projects in CCA.
Tier One control was accomplished by making the projects compatible with existing process management programs in the facility that required documentation....
